An exhibition of the current of American Pop Art at the GAT with 39 works by the

An exhibition of the current of American Pop Art was opened at the Art Gallery in Tirana. 39 works by American Pop Art icon Andy Warhol are on display at GAT. Located in the three halls of the Tirana Art Gallery, this is the first exhibition of its kind in the region, but also in Albania. Ormira Lulani, responsible for the arts and projects sector at GAT, also talks about the cooperation that made it possible to open this special exhibition to the public in Tirana this summer season. "For the first time, there are 39 works by the artist Andy Warhol, who is also an iconic figure of American pop art. These works were exhibited at GAT as a collaboration we had with Visconti Fine Art Gallery based in Ljubljana in Slovenia. Director Edit Pula made a meeting in October 2023 at their gallery and got to know the rich collection. A choice of the director to bring such an exhibition since he is one of the most important authors", says Lulani, who adds that it was a long work of several months until this result was achieved. A leading figure in the pop art movement, Warhol is considered one of the most important American artists of the second half of the 20th century. Now with the opening of this exhibition at GAT, the public can see his works up close. "A really important exhibition to bring the original works of such an artist, an icon of art, who also represents an important trend such as American pop art, which rather revolutionized modern art and is important for the fact that many people can come to see him closely and get to know his works. A first exhibition of this kind in the region and in Albania", says Lulani. Since the opening of the exhibition at GAT, public interest has been great. Various visitors, students or groups of foreign tourists who are in Tirana these days have stopped by the GAT to see the exhibition.

Exhibition works

In a material from GAT it is said that this exhibition presents not only some very popular and more reproduced works - such as eight serigraphs, the second edition (edition. 250) of Marilyn Monroe 1967, or (Cambell soup can) , 1970 serigraph, second edition - from the "Place Your Signature" editions stamped in blue ink on the back and published by Sunday. B. Morning - the origin of the name "Sunday B. Morning" has remained a mystery for years, it is claimed that it may have been cut from "Sunday Belgian Morning" when Warhol began collaborating with two anonymous friends from Belgium in 1970 for a series second printing. "Warhol changed his mind about this collaboration, but it was already too late. The Sunday B. Morning editions are the only posthumous Warhol prints that are exactly like the Factory editions, as he had handed over the instructions, photographic negatives and color codes to the Belgians. But this exhibition, this collection, among others, also includes some rare editions, such as the series "Ladies and Gentlemen", with eight serigraphs from 1975 (edition 125) and the series "Space fruit; still life), 1979, with six serigraphs, special edition (edition 30). The exhibition also includes the series (Skiator) 1983, 2 experimental trials and an official print signed by Andy Warhol", says the Tirana Art Gallery about the exhibition. The exhibition opened on June 5 at GAT and these works will be presented to the public until August 5.
